Label: Dais
Country: USA

"Its not often that you hear a perfect record. Or a record created with such honesty and energy that it makes you drop absolutely everything, listen intently, and then completely readjust your outlook on music. With an average age of 17, this Copenhagen quartet has somehow managed to redefine our perception entirely, and we love it. Uncontrived, pure – this record is a youthful assault of downer no-wave hardcore, wise beyond its years. Dais is proud to unveil Iceage here in the States with our special limited edition LP of their first album “New Brigade”. Our version contains two exclusive bonus tracks, and comes with a 4-page foldout lyric and photo insert, in a hand-numbered thick stock matte sleeve with gloss overlaid artwork." - Dais. 200 copies on red vinyl.

"The present is imperfect...ICK is a well know name in the industrial music world. Since a long time he is also involved in minimal electronic music.

Artist: ID M THEFT ABLE/CAVE BEARS
Title: Zone Y Ponds Y Sugars Ive/Germicide
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $11.50
"180 Gram Edition of 450. A split between two of New Englands most bizarre and mysterious artists with cover art by Matthew Thurber. The two sides couldnt be more different. Guaranteed to please half of the listening audience! Id M Theft Able uses electrified glass tables, springs, string bows and tape records to create organic interpretations of digital garbage beauty. This multi-act "mess play" is one of the highlights of his extensive discography. Cave Bears has done everything from smash light bulbs, pour mud across the floor, wear costumes made out of (operating) electric fans and (full) watering cans, and bang on buckets while suspended upside-down from a tree throwing fireworks while singing "Better Git Reddy Fer Judgement". On this record they suspend the Germs "Forming" in a crystallized state for 19 minutes of "just learning how to play our instruments with extra lo-fi slime effect." -Feeding Tube

Artist: IDEA FIRE COMPANY
Title: Stranded
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $11.25
"First proper release for IFCO since 1997s vastly underrated Anti-Natural LP. Since 2002 IFCO has been performing and recording as a quartet with Jessi Leigh Swenson and Meara OReilly added to core members Scott Foust and Karla Borecky. Stranded is a claustrophobic, sensuous optical illusion. Beautiful. Sad. Epic. Stranded." - Swill Radio.

Artist: IGNATZ
Title: II
Format: CD
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $12.50
"The debut of Ignatz is still fresh in your memory, and hes already there with the follow up. On Ignatz II, he walks further down the Appalachians in the year 2050. Stunning rootsfolk, but played by a lost and unworldly creature. His sound builds further upon his debut album, with the difference that on one of the six tracks he doesnt use any effects. He even sings and talks more and creates his own musical world around it. In the meantime he has become musical partners with Paul Labreque (Sunburned Hand of the Man) and Silverster Anfgang (Belgium), but still proves that his solo work towers above his other collaborations. II is the affirmation of his talent. Future weird Belgium!!" - Kraak

Artist: IGNATZ
Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $12.50
"George Herriman created Ignatz in 1910. It was a vicious mouse in the comic Krazy Kat. Ignatz favourite occupation was throwing bricks at Krazy Kats head, who thought it was a love declaration from the mouse. The Brussels based artist Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego for his own pile of bricks. Acoustic songs wrapped with effects and driven by improvisation and spontaneousness. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound. With his third full album Bram Devens has once again amazed us with a masterpiece. In his usual brain-melting retro-futuristic blues folk, he summons the devilish spirits of Bukka White, Robert Pete Williams and Sleepy John Estes as seen through the eyes of an adolescent Lou Reed. III tells a fictive and blurred story about the death of music genres. Tragedies built upon screeching, atonal and repetitive melodies. Smelling like a wet dog or a badly dried towel. III breathes a much more sentimental atmosphere compared to Devens?? previous work because of his grousing voice, that is not unlike Skip James??s. After the closing track ??Dead By noon?, the tormented soul frees the listener from a heavy personal trip and leaves him dazzled. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound." - Kraak.

Title: Selected Songs From Cassettes 2005-2009
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $12.50
"What the hells wrong with this guy?, that will probably be the first thought that goes through your mind when first listening to this mind frying fourth lp by Belgiums most intriguing musician. Apart from the tree enigmatic vinyl releases on KRAAK Bram Devens also released a handful of tapes on different labels. This LP compiles the best tracks of his cassettes on Goaty Tapes, Bennifer Editions, Scumbag Relations, Imvated, Dreamtime Taped Sounds and New Age Tapes, plus a previously unreleased track from the Ignatz III demos, on which we hear the man as close as he ever came to the genious vibes of Lou Reed. “Selected songs from cassettes 2005-2009” shows Devens in all his different guises: from the crying sailor drowning in psychedelic mud to the melody addicted outsider balladeer choking on moonshine. This is Ignatz ultimate record and last step before his orchestrated concept album period. Cover drawing by Olivier Schrauwen." - Kraak.

Artist: ILK
Title: Zenith
Format: CD
Label: No Fans
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"First release on Richard Youngs No Fans label since the early 90s double-shot of Advent & Lake. Richard says that Ilk is his one-man progressive rock band! And it does feature a mock-prog island-in-the-sky full color painting, mock suite-like song presentation and beautifully addled intricate rock structure -- all uniquely filtered through his quite identifiable persona. Richard has dropped a number of bombs throughout this decade and this might be his most outrageous yet."- FE. "This album was conceived whilst journey through the across the West Coast of Scotland, Summer 1997. Lyrics by Andrew Pain/Richard Youngs. Music by Richard Youngs. Richard Youngs plays bass guitars, classical guitar, flute, keyboard, sleighbells, violin and voice." - No Fans.

Artist: ILLUMINATIONS
Title: See-Saw
Format: LP
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Incorporating elements of blues, country, punk and pop, and with an emphasis on traditional songs, SEE-SAW falls into what Gram Parsons had called “cosmic American music”. Accordingly, it lies somewhere between the country-soul of Big Star and the punk spirit of The Wipers. Recorded in a basement on an 8 track reel to reel, and later mixed at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, its anthemic yet warmly modest. The drums, though straightforward and minimal, are a solid rallying cry. The bass is both warm and soulful. The guitars are twisted American hybrids, shifting from a bluesy jangle to a dark sound-fix, like Chuck Berry or Tom Verlaine playing to the sound of a jet crashing, or the springs of a clock snapping apart. The piano and organ add cool melodic counterpoints, bringing calm to chaos. The lyrics are spun out of rich phrases, crowded with protagonists that rise and fall on opposite ends of the great fulcrum of luck. Zachary Cales vocal delivery is wrenching, both crooner-like and raw. The end result is an enigmatic album that is both familiar and foreign; one that wears the suit of American rock & roll, but broadcasts anthems from another universe." - All Hands Electric. Edition of 600 w/CDR.

Artist: IMA
Title: Now Again For The First Time
Format: CD
Label: Phon
Country: UK
Price: $8.50
"Intense Molecular Activity worked diligently in the background during the zenith of New York Citys visceral post punk and no wave movements. Recording as a duo, Don Hunerberg and Andy Blinx pain-stakingly wove together their own textured songs and soundscapes from 1979 to 1982. No outsiders to the scene, Hunerberg was a recording engineer at the legendary Radio City Music Hall Recording Studio working with Sonic Youth, the Ramones, Blondie, John Cale, Richard Hell and many others. Blinx was a drummer who also pioneered LED fashion accessories for Patricia Field, Maripol, Grace Jones, Bill Aucoin plus more. While bearing some comparisons to the likes of Suicide, Devo and Gary Numan, IMA looked beyond minimal synth/post punk stylistic trappings and “hosed them down in wetly psychoactive sense deranging treatments” (MUTANTS SOUNDS Blog). IMA left behind only one EP, 4 tracks, on Flexi-Disc in 1980 that was independently produced and then distributed worldwide by 99 Records. The recording has since become a rare and hidden gem for die-hard record collectors around the world. Tracks from the Flexi-disc, and an additional eight from the archives, are heard here, now again for the first time." - Phon.

Artist: INCAPACITANTS/PAIN JERK
Title: Live at the No Fun Fest 2007
Format: CD
Label: No Fun
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Like no other music in this planet, these two Japanese noise masters deliver obsessive, precise and unforgettable live sets of intense electronic harsh beauty. Legendary Japanese noise masters Incapacitants and Pain Jerk performed for the first time ever in the US at No Fun Fest 2007, this CD include crystal clear board recordings of their sets, mastered for full audio brutality. If you havent had the pleasure of experiencing either of this acts live this is your chance, if you have then this is also your chance to re-experience two of the most amazing live performers of our time. Liner notes by Carlos Giffoni and Chris Goudreau (Sickness). Incapacitants began in 1981 as Toshiji Mikawas solo project in Osaka, where Mikawa collaborated with Yamatsuka Eye and others. Later, in Tokyo, Fumio Kosakai became a member, to form the current duo. From the beginning, while the attempt to achieve pure NOISE has been the most important aspect of their sound, they have also been famous for their stage performances, which are so wild they may remind people of pro wrestling matches. This aggressive, energetic style and the beauty of their NOISE are unrivaled. Along with Hijo Kaidan, Merzbow, C.C.C.C., and Solmania, Incapacitants is one of the most well known of the NOISE bands which started out in the early 80s. Because of the members other work (Mikawa is a bank employee, and Kosakai works in a government office) they have rarely toured inside or outside Japan. Pain Jerk is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi. Pain Jerk was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists of the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the "dynamic" style of Japanese noise, alongside acts such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo." -No Fun.

Artist: INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND
Title: Radio Caroline
Format: 7"
Label: Last Laugh
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Official release that pairs two great tracks recorded in 1977. A must for fans of early UK punk and power pop." - Last Laugh.

Artist: INFINITE BODY
Title: A Series Of False Awakenings
Format: One Sided LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Kyle Parker is Infinite Body. Like most of Southern Californias harsh noise youth crew (Impregnable, Privy Seals, Pedestrian Deposit), IB is the polar opposite of Kyles former project, Gator Surprise. There is something about the shift from creating unrelenting, harsh noise to ambient dreamlike drones that works perfectly; flowing with dedication and intensity from similar veins. Infinite Bodys debut cd "White Hymn" was a masterpiece of blurred lights, colorful, but heavy synthesizer and vocoder pieces. "A Series of False Awakenings", his follow up to that CD from the winter, shows a seasonal change, with a heavy presence on field recordings: children in parks, chimes, and the spring ambience of light winds and birds songs. An elevated sense of reality: entirely surreal. Kyles thoughtful and sincere work is certainly some of the most well executed around and the upcoming Infinite Body/Emaciator split LP on Monorail Trespassing will only further solidify this. In an edition of 300 LPs with proprinted foldover sleeves featuring art by Kyle." - Arbor.

Artist: INFINITY WINDOW
Title: Artificial Midnight
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"New York snyth duo Infinity Window have been crafting their game for well over a year without much documentation. Comprised of Dan Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Taylor Richardson (Prehistoric Blackout), this LP shows them at the pinnacle of self-realization. Equally influenced by John Carpenter and the Taj Mahal Travelers, they create traveling music; music that has the power to transport and overwhelm the listener with vibes outside of those presently available to them. The A Side consists of two tracks, both clouded in a heavy haze of fog, dark and heavy though their clarity exists underneath the shroud. The B Sides lone track "Skull Theft" is the full circle realization of the first two tracks: a light is illuminated and the fog begins to clear. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman." -Arbor. Repressed.

Artist: INJECTIONS, THE
Title: Prison Walls/Lies
Format: 7"
Label: Last Laugh
Country: UK
Price: $6.00
"Official reissue with professionally printed sleeves. Originally released on Radioactive Records in 1980. Two great anthems from the early San Diego punk scene. Skum stats: 500 pressed" - Last Laugh.

Artist: INSAYNGEL
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Heavy Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"LP edition of 500, full color printed covers We saw Insayngel play some time in 2008 or maybe the end of 2007 at Glasslands. Immediately we said to each other "This band needs to have a record out. Lets do it." We talked to the band after the gig and they were down -- it was recorded, mastered by our friend Todd Cavallo, and sent off to the plant. Insayngel is Calder, Caitlin, Richard, and John. Calder and Caitlin are Vizusa and used to jam Excepter, and Richard and John are the brutal rhythm unit of Sightings. An intriguing combination of players to say the least, this LP brings a 30th Century sound to the history of New York City. The locked, wrecked rhythms, desparate, gorgeous wails, and shredded, anxious guitars are symphonic, undulating, impossible. A serious now vision that impressed us deeply enough to be the first LP weve ever done. Art by Calder, pressed in Brooklyn, New York." -Heavy Tapes

Artist: INSTANT AUTOMATONS
Title: Archaeology (Live Performances 1980-82)
Format: CDR
Label: Waterden
Country: UK
Price: $8.50
"A perfect example of the Art of Human Error. The Instant Automatons were always at their most endearingly ramshackle when playing live, and this CD captures 15 such performances, originally recorded between 1980 and 1982. This document serves as a timely reminder that once upon a time people didnt need Simon Cowells permission to be performers - they just grabbed their axes, got up on the stage and did it!" - Waterden.

Artist: INSTANT AUTOMATONS
Title: Not So Deep As A Well

"A 27-track anthology following the UKs premier exponents of Free Music from the Peter Paints His Fence EP to the Love Not Devotion LP and beyond. Contains several previously unreleased tracks." - Waterden.

Artist: IOVAE/THREE LEGGED RACE
Title: Heliofugue/Calling Order
Format: 7"
Label: Epicene
Country: USA
Price: $4.00
"Two of my favorite modern noise makers from the states have to be HAIR POLICE and IOVAE. This is very close to being a split from both. IOVAE is Ron Orovitz also known as the D.J. on ART DAMAGE RADIO, a memeber of the no-wave nosie group DEATH BEAM, a noise weirdos WILD GUNMAN. For IOVAEs track we get slow churning crackle, pop and hiss from the "Grinder" (a series of ancient military oscillators) that builds into what sounds like the church bell tones of a satanic mass echoing through the devils canyon. 3 LEGGED RACE is Robert from HAIR POLICE and EYES AND ARMS OF SMOKE. For the Race side we get one ominous heavenly droning swelling tone which is given the extreme reverb treatment until it sounds like a white washed blissed out radiant hum. The artwork was designed by Robert and is a must see. One sheet of lines with a transparency of lines. but when one is placed over the othere, you start to see a hidden image. Also just moving the transparency around on top of the other page makes alot of tripped out intersecting lines. like i said one you have to see, def one of the best looking, most intresting covers in EPICENE history. Limited edition of 300 copies, split release with Mark of Black Tents Gentian label." - Epicene.

Artist: ISLAJA
Title: Palaa Aurinkoon
Format: CD
Label: Fonal
Country: Finland
Price: $14.50
"Islaja masters the elements of our universe one by one or maybe the sea and the sun are embracing Islaja, it must go both ways but there, where all this happens, the listener is received with clattering sounds of paradise and drowned by surprise in a swell that stretches all the way to the dark rock bottom. Whats down there? Fight the rotten faith so itll wither until it hardly exists, believe it! Islaja shows the way of rhythm, no it isnt a straight one, the way of chant, it cant be foreseen. Textures evolve into new ones. Scabby rhythms spin socks on feet, skin burns into ashes in the attacking heat. Senile wine glasses wail of happiness. Fallen off beard hair are woven into a scarf that lets the wind blow fast right through it. If only life would be like this more than just an hour at a time! After everything the sun blesses the way with Islajas words, it spits out of its system the wet and transformed listener, who longs for the light again. Islajas second album was born in two different places that have been sewed up one to another with the binds of words and a rich sound world. Here and there, Islajas friends have lent their voices for this world. Loose guitar paths, long strokes of wind instruments, glasses and toys that clink, rattle and tinkle, rhythms, keyboards and Islajas wonderful, many-faceted voice are cooing in a miraculous net. The album is a spontaneous texture of muscle, cartilage and liquid, everything organized in such a surprising way that one cant believe right away that its a human being, but soon enough it becomes clear that its a most ingenious creature. It evolves by itself. It tells us how everything metamorphoses, it relies on itself and infuses belief into the listener that one can change the world. The secret place where the creature invites the listener is revealed to be our real world, it lives here with us." - Lau Naukkarinen.

Artist: IZITITIZ
Title: Lucky Bird
Format: CD
Label: Sound @ One
Country: USA
Price: $6.25
"Following their initial tape release on Conduit Creations, The Diaper Band / Moshes Mix Vol. I, and subsequent vinyl offering, with our with jazz, New Yorks IZITITIZ presents Lucky Bird, a work inspired by such personalities and artifacts as Alan Arenius, the roof of ABC No Rio, Animal, a pet pigeon, Nami Yamamotos Freedumb and a set of Hinthouse chimes.
